What To Tawk About

Episode II of the What To Tawk About Series. Catch up on Episode 1 here

So what SHOULD you talk about?  Everything else! The best relationships begin with a conversation–a two-way conversation. They unfold naturally, organically, as two people introduce their best selves to one another, discovering along the way, and hopefully developing an appreciation for who that other person actually is.  (Which is why the very idea of “choosing” a potential mate from a photograph or basic profile is so wholly ineffective.)

Matchmaker Says: She’s Paleo, You’re A Vegan.

Dear Matchmakers: I’m in love with a woman who follows a paleo diet, but I’m a 80-10-10 low-fat raw vegan/fruitarian, so we have fruits and vegetables in common for food.

We’ve also both stated that we didn’t think the other was our first priority type, but I’ve come to love her anyway, and she says she possibly could fall for me in the future, but in the mean time she’s going to look for her first type, and if she doesn’t find him, she knows she can come back to me. What do we do to resolve this situation?

The Most Common Things I Hear as a Matchmaker (and What I’m Not Afraid to Tell You)
